About Anne-Sophie Mutter

For over 40 years, Anne-Sophie Mutter has shaped the field of classical music, with performances throughout the world. She has given world premieres of 28 works from composers such as Unsuk Chin, Sebastian Currier, Henri Dutilleux, Sofia Gubaidulina, Witold Lutoslawski, Norbert Moret, Krzysztof Penderecki, Sir André Previn, Wolfgang Rihm, Jörg Widmann and John Williams. 

In 2020, Mutter embarked upon her Beethoven anniversary concerts in the United States, giving several recitals with esteemed pianist Lambert Orkis. The concerts with Violin Sonatas Nos. 4, 5 and 9 took these two musicians, who are known to harmonize perfectly with one another, into the 32nd year of their artistic collaboration. The recording of Beethoven's Sonatas for Piano and Violin by Anne-Sophie Mutter and Lambert Orkis won a Grammy Award in 2000. 

In 1997 she founded the Association of Friends of the Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation e.V., to which the Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation was added in 2008. These two charitable institutions provide individualized mentorship and support for scholarship recipients. She is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Praemium Imperiale in the music category; the Polar Music Prize; the Gloria Artis Gold Medal for Cultural Achievements; and the Spanish Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports' "Medalla de oro al Mérito en las Bellas Artes" (Gold Medal for Merits in the Fine Arts).
